Similar to:

PHP5.1-RC2-dev snaps (d/l today) crashes (segfaults) when a mod_rewrite is used with a .htaccess file (have not tried it hard coded into httpd.conf).   PHP-5.1b2 works correctly without crashing.

Reproduce code:
Code to reproduce is available at:

the .htaccess file used there is live and accessing the url:  (to match one of the rules) will cause the httpd child to segfault.

I have posted a backtrace there also.

This is the .htaccess file from PHP Gallery (G2) modified to work in my example dir.

Expected result:
I expect the test.php to be called like:

Actual result:

Try adding the rules into httpd.conf.

 [2005-09-22 00:23 UTC] phpbugrep-20050921 at pgregg dot com
I added the contents of the htaccess into the httpd.conf and stop/started.  Result was the same - still segfaulting.
Backtrace at:

They are essentially the same.

Problem still persists.

What was the configure line you used to configure PHP?
(I can't reproduce this with the one I have..)

Do you have any ErrorDocument directive set in any .htaccess file or httpd.conf?

 [2005-09-22 13:01 UTC] phpbugrep-20050921 at pgregg dot com
I did, but I have now turned it off. Makes no difference though.
 [2005-09-22 15:53 UTC]
I can't reproduce it either (tried both with Apache 1.3.x & Apache 2.x).
And valgrind doesn't say a word about it.
Please add some more info on how to reproduce it.

PHP5.1RC1 segfaults apache when a mod_rewrite is used in an .htaccess. My .htaccess: 

RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !.gif$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !.jpg$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /home/lists/index.php [T=application/x-httpd-php,L]

Commenting out last (RewriteRule) does not segfault apache, but obviously does not work as needed.

The related apache error log lines:

[Mon Sep 26 09:07:25 2005] [notice] child pid 10619 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)

hmm, I have already given enough information on reproducing it.   However, I have set up a FreeBSD machine for you to login (with root access) if you wish so you may login and examine the setup.

I have setup a minimal apache2 httpd and a _minimal_ PHP (oh a --disable-everything-implied would be nice ;)   gdb6.3 is installed.

Please message Qube or Derick on Efnet for the login credentials - if you have @ in the appropriate channel you'll get them.
